    Hello everyone!
    I have lurked this forum for a long time and have just decided to join as I'll be attending the Lower Sixth Form at Gresham's School in Hold, Norfolk. I would be happy if anyone could give me information on this school, apart from their website, which is very informing, it'd be more helpful if anyone could write a bit on how do the students feel about this school, boarding life etc. It'd be great if anyone that actually studies at Gresham's could reply to this post.
    Cheers and thanks in advance!

    Hey,

    I went to Gresham's School sixth form but that was about 5 years ago. Don't know if that is too far in the past but I don't think that there have been any major changes since then.

    I really enjoyed my stay at Gresham's. But it depends entirely what you make of your stay there. Some friends of mine at Gresham's did not like it very much, the majority did though!
    Anyway, I was a fullboarder and stood at Howson's House (the best house of course :P). Do you know what house you will be staying at?
    I guess that arriving at Gresham's in sixth form is pretty neat. I think its way more comfortable than being there for forms below the sixth.
    One thing that annoyed me a lot is that we had assemblies at the school chapel 6x a week. I was not a big fan of that but at some point you will figure out a way to ditch that **** hahah.

    Well, all in all, I quite enjoyed my stay there. If you have any specific questions pm me.
